Virtual school for looked after children


The aim of the virtual school is to ensure that looked after children have the opportunity to fulfil their educational potential.

Although we are not a 'real' school with buildings and classrooms, our virtual school brings together information about all children who are looked after by the council - as if they were in a single school.

It allows us to closely track each child's progress and ensure we can identify the specific support they may need at an early stage, so we can work with individual schools to implement any actions.
